And when those who speak to her inexplicably commit suicide shortly afterwards, Nightingale is called in. He discovers a demon has possessed the girl's body…and the only way to banish it is to kill her.
And that's not all he has to deal with. After a farmer kills eight people before turning the gun on himself, the press label him as a Satanist.

Pretty good thriller

I enjoyed the first three books in the Nightingale series better than this one. But this one was also pretty good and had some neat ideas in it. It is kind of a reboot from the first three books where Nightingale gets to live his life over again and is once again faced by a demon, however in this book it is a shade that he is dealing with. A young girl is kidnapped and abused to the point of being killed opening her up for and evil entity to move into her body with an evil agenda. What Nightingale must have to do to confront her is a horrible thing to even think about. Mrs. Stedman remakes an appearance to help guide Mr. Nightingale along. Jenny is also present in this book but has a very minor rule which kind of disappointed me. Paul Thornley does a very good job with the narration however his voice tends to go into a monotone at times and made me start to drift off. But overall he did A good job bringing the characters to life.

- Steven "I like sci-fy and fantasy. My favorite books are Karen Miller's Kingmaker Kingbreaker series and Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicles."

Horrible new narrator to this series

Ralph Lister used to read this series and he was brilliant. He did the voices and read in an engaging way. This new guy for this book reads in a clipped boring tone that is really making me want to not finish this book :( I may return the, and read them myself on kindle.

Horrible. Why didn't the author leave well enough alone.
